A few historic Thanet photos

 These should expand if clicked on, I think this one is of the Empire Bandstand so before the one we have now which dates from the late 1920s
 I suppose the photos speak for themselves, saying different things to different people 




 This one is of the lido in Cliftonville Margate during the 1953 tidal surge storm

Link to the books we put out in the bookshop yesterday

I spent a fair amount of today trying to get a better camera, this wasn't really successful - however I learnt a lot about digital cameras. I think the main thing being that when it comes to electronic technology, cameras, phones, computers, TVs - we have come to a bit of an improvement slowdown or stop.

My own take on this is that as we are so much interlinked with technology and to an extent the improvement in technology from about 1995 to 2012 and it is looking to me like not much improvement from 2012 to 2018 there may be some serious implications.

Next various attempts to take a photo of the inside of a mask so it doesn't look like the outside, this is fairly easy to do if you show part of the real outside, and part of my interest in optical illusions, all of the photos below are of the inside, back of the same mask, they should all expand if you clcik on them

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
